5/5-7 Weekend News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on May 5, 2023 by jcityboneMay 5, 2023 Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Same comment about Clyburn applies to this DINO.
Figures. Race sure doesn’t hold a monopoly on greed and corruption.
Yep, it doesent discriminate.
What a load of you-know-what. Even my RW pals know it’s craporate price gouging plus supply line issues.
There is NO way Anna Eskamani supports any of this FRightwingnut/DeSh1tface crap. She said that the impromptu dancing is just a fun thing the Reps do. The state Democrats are a rock solid block against the MAGA jerks. They vote together against the FRightwing horse manure.
The polite name is Obummer.
As if raising the minimum wage would be unpopular with voters in these states. The true reason these Dems vote against it is because it is unpopular with their “business allies” (donors).
“…a vote on a bill to raise the national minimum wage to $17 an hour — a proposal Senate Democrats facing tough reelection races opposed in 2021.”
Cough, cough, cough…oh really? These bought off DINO yahoos are going to face the wrath of the voters if they finally raise the minimum/slavery wage? Get me some smelling salts cos I’m having the vapors. Go get ’em, Bernie!!!
Tester, King, Manchin and Sinema will be No. That’s why it won’t pass unless there is some other sweetner.
Even Hochul seems to be wondering why the white marine was let go. Perhaps he could have offered a few dollars to Neeley instead of choking him to death.
I heard that a grand jury has been called. It’s very obvious that the marine was white and the victim, black. The marine has been identified btw. If that happened down here, DeSh1tface would give that vet yahoo a medal. This country won’t make it to its 300th birthday if the FRightwingnuts aren’t brought under serious control!
Judiciary Chair could have been Whitehouse. Instead Senate Dems chose worthless Durbin. Of course.
What Georgia Senate runoffs? I think POLITICO blew it! Aint, do you know what’s up here?
I haven’t looked into this, but I’m guessing it has to do with judges to a certain extent.
The article is from December 2020.
That explains it–thx, jcb. 🙂
Man, you hit the nail on the head about Durbin, jcb. 🙁
Really great pick 🤮🤮🤮
Me, too. Where’s my barf bag? Still nothing semi-senile does shocks me anymore.
More likely chosen by the new chief of staff.
T and R x 3, jcb!!☮️🙂👍👏 Happy Cinco de Mayo and dawgs rule back at ya!🤎🐶
This is figurative of the devastation taking place in Texas. Rogues.
Saw it on the ABC Infotainment “News” last night. That smoke looked precisely like what it is: black poison.
all ready know the cause ,the summer driving season ,Now the gouging begins
Was watching the last of the King Charles’s coronation, and when I saw Camilla, my gut reaction was “it should have been Diana.”
Camilla was the big change in this gig. She’s the first divorcee to become Queen. Charles is just another dude in a long line of men. Queen Elizabeth was the 3rd woman.
Same down here, Ms. Benny. Diana would have been a gorgeous queen. Camilla—blech! just sitting down at my aging desktop to get the latest Birdie scoop. 🙂 Hubster and I walked the grounds of Westminster Abbey back over 20 years ago when we did a bike (motorcycle) run through the German/Austrian Alps. I’m not exaggerating which I write this, but I could smell the history–literally. We sure don’t have that here.
Thier on sale right now , relatively cheap even for a Billionaire
😥😥 sadly its true, the GQP is exceeding them. Defascist has been on a roll in Fla latley
I saw this in the LA Daily:
This would be about 25 miles north of Dallas on US 75. This is getting old.
Got the NYT home page up this am. Steeling my cynical self to read about the shootings. We saw the first reports come in right after the running of the Derby. Man, last night I was talking to a good pal who is very conservative ‘cept she’s no X-tian Fundie. She told me bad stuff is building internationally, and one of the things she was referring to is climate crisis. The other is nuclear war. She’s a grandma. Believe me, folks in this country know, and they’re sick of the for-profit media.
Abbott went to the GQP no1 hit (below). i wonder if maybe making it mandatory for all news outlets to show the carnage and or aftermath of a mass shooting on TV. maybe the gaping wounds and body parts strewn everywhere espically with children might force the congresscritters into action. The picters and video that was shown on the nightly news during Vietnam was a factor of getting us out. America got sick of it and forced congress to act. Maybe the GQP should be made to walk thru every mass shooting and see the carnage like the Germans were made to do at Auschwitz. The 2A is outdated in its current form and needs a serious rewrite.
We’re damned lucky Floridumb hasn’t caught up yet!
Just another member of the well NOT well regulated militia that happened to kill 8 and injure 7.
+270! It’s sickening!!
Watching this tonight. It’s actually an amazing action 1940 B&W movie with Errol Flynn at the top of his game. Flora Robson is one of the great cinema Queen Elizabeths. Spain is obviously the evil Nazis and England is heroic England. Excellent propaganda film.
Can’t believe they don’t feature Robson in the clip. She and Errol are the best things in the movie.
